Romney Crowd Will Defeat Hurricanes With Chants Of U-S-A! (Video)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Here is Mitt Romney tryna be all “MESSAGE: WE CARE” when something unexpected happens. A middle-aged white man yells “what about the climate?” (instead of the obviously more important “what about your gaffes”) and unfurls a banner explaining, DERR climate change is creating bigger and more dangerous “weather events,” and we will all just have to get used to it. Silly white man! “The climate” did not cause Killer Sandy! And if it did, why, a rousing round of “U-S-A” will defeat it once and for all! Why didn’t Michael Bloomberg just think of that? [Youtube]

"Message: I Care?" HAR DE HAR HAR.

Why doesn't Mittbot just buy FEMA, and donate it back to the country?

Wait…a white man who cares about the climate? He must be a sekrit Muslin traiter!

Loch_Nessosaur November 1, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Sandy – 1, Mittz – 0.

boskolives November 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Sandy blew for a while, Mittz still sucks. Just saying…..

Terry November 1, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Mitt will make sure that there are no pesky hurricanes on his own personal planet when he gets there.

SmutBoffin November 1, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Or, all hurricanes all the time. He's just that much of a dick.

Geminisunmars November 1, 2012 at 4:34 pm

It will be Hurricane Mitt when he arrives.

Don't tell him, but Uranus has been reserved for Mitt.

Barbara_ November 1, 2012 at 3:55 pm

God, I hate that fucking smirk of his.

memzilla November 1, 2012 at 3:58 pm

I've heard they'll fix that in the Mittbot 3.0 upgrade.

Lascauxcaveman November 1, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Well, that one can't come Soong enough.

GhostBuggy November 1, 2012 at 4:28 pm

Did they Spot the problem with the other one?

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Um, the Borg is strong with this one. Did I do that right?

Generation[redacted] November 1, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Yeah but the maps app gets all screwy with that upgrade. It thinks Iran and Syria share a border.

BoatOfVelociraptors November 1, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Iraq? What's that?

Geminisunmars November 1, 2012 at 4:35 pm

The route to the sea.

I want to wipe it off his smug face…with votes. Yes, with actual votes, and I'll get my chance on Tuesday.

SmutBoffin November 1, 2012 at 3:56 pm

These are the same people that think praying helps, so at least they are consistent.

BoatOfVelociraptors November 1, 2012 at 4:11 pm

An interesting argument could be made about the power of mantras, aka "clap harder".

Callyson November 1, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Praying better fucking help–I pray for an Obama re-election hourly (is there such a thing as minutely?)

boskolives November 1, 2012 at 7:35 pm

All prayers are answered, sometimes the answer is no.

Crank_Tango November 1, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Yeah, but what about Nobama engineering the derpicane from his island fortress, using HAARP? And benghazi team 6 vince foster?

He's not much for thinking on his feet, is he? He had 40 seconds to think of a quip, and….went on with his speech as if nothing happened. Just stood there with that simpering smile like my Aunt Mabel. Why do people think this guy is smart?

An_Outhouse November 1, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Hey, its not his job. He hired people to take care of that.

SorosBot November 1, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Rmoney should have said to the crowd (really): "I might just let Sandy flood this guy's cellar."

Goonemeritus November 1, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Hey he really loves coal, you wouldn’t want him to be unfaithful to coal would you. Who are we to judge?

memzilla November 1, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Once again, an Rmoney crowd that's so white you need sunglasses to avoid going snowblind.

Geminisunmars November 1, 2012 at 4:55 pm

I saw a blah guy in the crowd standing behind him at some faux-food drive in the last couple of days. He stood out like a raisin in cream-of-wheat. I couldn't take my eyes off of him.

Texan_Bulldog November 1, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Chants of 'U-S-A' tends to be the cure all for the Republicans. Your unemployment benefits run out & you can't afford food: U-S-A, U-S-A!! You have cancer & no health insurance: U-S-A, U-S-A!! I feel better already.

MissTaken November 1, 2012 at 4:05 pm

My computer was acting up this morning then I chanted U-S-A!! at it and now everything is better!

Percussive maintenance, aka the technical tap is the preferred solution of engineers all over the world.

U.S., Eh? is getting dangerously close to U.S. Eh? Si! and the introduction of the Amero…

AngryBlakGuy November 1, 2012 at 4:34 pm

…maybe if those seditious traitors up in the Northeast were as patriotic as you the wouldn't be sitting under 4ft of water without any electricity!!! They should have stood on the shores of the Atlantic hand in hand shouting U-S-A, U-S-A, until hurricane Sandy disintegrated into fine mist of unicorn piss!

Dudleydidwrong November 1, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Mrs. Dudley said she had a headache last night.
I began the chant: U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!!!
and…
She still had a headache. So it doesn't work on all problems.

HouseOfTheBlueLights November 1, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Here's some "real change" for you, Mitt and the Mittbots: CLIMATE change. Have fun drowning.

ManchuCandidate November 1, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Rmoney and gang can unleash megatonnes of stupid, but it doesn't really translate well against megatonnes of actual real energy unleashed by Sandy.

There is NOTHING a round of chanting "USA! USA!" won't cure.

goat_thrower November 1, 2012 at 4:06 pm

I went to the doctor last year and he told me I had a a low-grade glioma located in my brainstem and I only had 3 months to live. He said there was one controversial treatment he could try but he could not guarantee results. Not having anything to lose I agreed to go ahead with the treatment. My doctor then positioned himself behind me and with his soothing dulcet tones he chanted "USA USA USA" at the base of my skull. I have been cancer-free for almost 10 months now.

BaldarTFlagass November 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

I tried to get my girlfriend to cure my erectile dysfunction in this manner but it only made things worse.

Geminisunmars November 1, 2012 at 5:03 pm

She's not doing it right. Obviously.

emmelemm November 1, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Tell her to do it with your dick in her mouth.

BaldarTFlagass November 1, 2012 at 6:57 pm

"Sorry, baby, but 'blow' is just a figure of speech."

It won't cure stupid.

smokefilledroommate November 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Conversely, it may be the cause.

AngryBlakGuy November 1, 2012 at 4:54 pm

…the sad thing is that they aren't even good at starting a "U-S-A" chant. "W's" mob could slip into a U-S-A chant at the drop of the hat, these guys sputter and stall into a chant like my first car trying to start on a cold day!

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 5:02 pm

What about chlamydia? A, er, friend of mine wants to know…

AngryBlakGuy November 1, 2012 at 5:11 pm

…one time my "friend" had the clap and all he had to do was rub some prayer on it! Now it only burns when he pee's standing up!!!

cousinitt November 1, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I especially liked the part were Mittens of Mordor says, "We're going to give it to you."

Ooooh, baby!

UW8316154 November 1, 2012 at 4:22 pm

OTOH, when OHJB promises "I'm going to give you the whole load today", I blush and get kinda tingly.

cousinitt November 1, 2012 at 4:38 pm

You have a point there. A sticky, gelatinous one, but a good point. Isn't always Dems who deliver what they promise? Just ask Monica.

Damn, Benghazi had less staying power than Sandy.

FlownOver November 1, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Benghazi is what happens when we allow mercenaries to guard our consulates and embassies.

Good eye. I thought Landau from North by Northwest would be less upsetting.

Geminisunmars November 1, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Yeah, looking at it didn't make me want to run and hide under my blankets. But that could have been the martinis.

T3rbo November 1, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Why do you have to be a climate change denier in order to be a republican? Or does it just help you get along with idiots to parrot nonsense and gibberish? Those rallies have to be like whatever the opposite of MENSA is. The rest of the Youtube video captured some dialog, which I have transcribed below:
Cletus: I hurd Obammy is a secret nigra muslin
Shaylene: I dun' hurd Obammer wants to tak way our jeebus!
Cletus: Yep, Fords are pieces of SHIT!
Shaylene: Well, them petra rikkans is nice colored folk, some of 'em!
Cletus: Yeah, I hope I ain't get the gout, from drinkin so much Boone's Farm…

prommie November 1, 2012 at 4:48 pm

The GOP is owned by oil, gas, and coal, the extraction/energy industries. They are fighting like grim death to continue making their profits till the last last last drop of oil is burned, the last ton of coal, whatever. People often ask, "why not a new Manhattan project to rid ourselves of dependence on hydrocarbon fuels completely, if we tried, couldn't we do that?" Well, yes we could, but, you see, the dominant party is controlled by the oil and gas and coal industries, and the control is so complete you see this idiotic blatant know-nothingism science denial. They are now attacking scieence itself, just to attack climate science, such is the power of the industry over these people.

T3rbo November 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Wait, are you telling me that big business has somehow taken control of our government and is using it to pursue its interests at the expense of the nation? Someone should tell the Tea Party, and quick!

weejee November 1, 2012 at 3:13 pm

OT /snark

This weekend there will be a Get Yer Rear in Gear 5K for colon cancer. This disease can strike folks of all ages, not just oldes like me and Mrs. weejee. We know too well, as our 30-year old daughter-in-law is now a 1-year survivor. She was on the local NBC affiliate today talking about her situation and her team that will be running in Seattle this weekend. It will be run in a number of cities, so if you have some time and need a bit of exercise, go out and get your rear-in-gear.

StillGoinGreen November 1, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Since I'm an atheist, I won't do the God Bless … So, I just put my money where my mouth is and made a donation to the cause on the clicky thingy you provided. As a cancer survivor myself, I wish her all the mostest and bestest for the rest of her long life!

I would have, but I was afraid my voice would have been lost on the wind.

We chanted- " oh,shit" everytime we heard the big winds- and it worked. No trees down!

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 1, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Hard to distinguish that one from all his others. Like Kristen Stewart.

AngryBlakGuy November 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

…rule #1 of being being a Rethuglican, there is nothing that can't be diffused with false patriotism. I believe that it was Lewis Sinclair that said:

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.”

I think Mittens has both of these attributes in spades!!!

doloras November 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Actually, Mormons aren't that big on the cross. They surprisingly agree with Lenny Bruce, that when Jesus comes back the last thing he's going to want to see is a fuckin' cross. Which is why Mormon churches have those pointy needle things instead.

AngryBlakGuy November 1, 2012 at 4:56 pm

…I stand corrected, "“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying pointy Mormon needle thing-a-ma-bob!"

emmelemm November 1, 2012 at 5:05 pm

I'm not familiar with this "pointy needle". I don't really want to Google "Mormon pointy needle" either…

If we on the left all start chanting "USA! USA!" at those on the right, will the chants cancel each other out?

wapitiscat November 1, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Maybe an ASU! chant would do it.

T3rbo November 1, 2012 at 5:23 pm

You are very close here. The left needs to chant "FEMA! FEMA! FEMA!"

BeefHardcake November 1, 2012 at 4:18 pm

The implication being, what, that if you believe in climate change, then you're not a Merkin?

Romney can fucking have those people. I'll take the sane, rational ones, please.

Yes, same here. How do you beat this kind of thinking without pandering to it? What do we do, trick a comparable number of idiots into mindlessly accepting the left leaning point of view? I think their side can make more robots faster than we can by far. To convert someone to being left leaning/liberal, you have to get them to read things. To trick someone to become a right wing drone, you have to do very little at all…

In 04 I witnessed as a supporter of John Kerry approached 2 women and said "Are you supporting John Kerry this election?" and they both laughed and said, in unison, "Scary Kerry!" and made gagging sounds and I thought to myself "Well, you can't really argue with that."

Well, to be fair, the chanting of "USA! USA!" has kept hurricanes out of Ohio for quite some time.

Mitt Romney to New Jersey: "clean up your own gosh-darn lane of your football field." (Mitt doesn't swear.)

"If everyone cleans their lane, we'll get the job done." [actual Mittens quote]

Sounds like socialism to me!

And then they dragged the man away and let the womenz who had the "rapey thing" done to them tear him limb from limb… (I know, I know… The Handmaiden's Tale libel.)

Oh…. and that effin' smirk….

SayItWithWookies November 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

See, to Mitt and his supporters, the problem isn't climate change — it's people talking about climate change. If you can stop the talk about it, you've solved the problem. Now if only those women would shut up about abortion and birth control, and poor people would shut up about being poor and so on, we wouldn't have all these issues.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 4:27 pm

As a proud member of the ill-ffated Wisconsin Uprising, I can tell you that chanting rarely solves anything. It's fun, but doesn't solve much.

YerMa November 1, 2012 at 4:32 pm

As a sister in the WI Uprising, I concur,

Not true! I watched your hollering from afar here in Californicatia. You and Occupy inspired me out of my complacent Blue State complacency to send moneez to your candidates, pay for pizzas to you protesters at the State Capitol, and join my local Democratic club here at home. I'd still be more concerned about yoga and tanning, our official state pastimes, if not for you WI libtards. Please keep a-hollering.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Thanks for that, truly. It's amazing how many people it reached. Even though we didn't get that prick out of office, it's gratifying to know we inspired people to raise their voices and get involved.

johnnymeatworth November 1, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Sure, just like the chants of "NO RAIN!" kept Woodstock from getting muddy.

"A middle-aged white man yells “what about the climate?” (instead of the obviously more important “what about your gaffes”) and unfurls a banner explaining, DERR climate change is creating bigger and more dangerous “weather events,” and we will all just have to get used to it."

I was wondering where Al Gore has been this election cycle. After a few more hurricanes wipe out east coast communities and damage totals exceed 1 trillion dollars, Al Gore will finally be able say, "TOLD YA SO MOTHERFUCKERS!!"

BTWBFDIMHO November 1, 2012 at 4:47 pm

But something changed: Sandy brought stinking waters inside the stock market. Now Wall St knows they need the National Flood Insurance Corp, and the FEMA that Ron Paul and the Banana Republicans want to eliminate. http://blogcritics.org/politics/article/ron-paul-

Hey, come on, they do too believe in science, which says climate change is caused by Mars wobbles, not man.

OneYieldRegular November 1, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Slightly O/T, but I can not figure out how – whether Mittens is elected or not – he's ever going to extract himself from the Faustian bargains he's made to get where he is today.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Why don't these people chant what they really believe in? "N-R-A! N-R-A!"

Callyson November 1, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Because Mittens fears people would hear that as "I-R-A! I-R-A!" and be reminded of his financial tricks and secrets.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr November 1, 2012 at 6:09 pm

I wonder if Mittens hears "Tax Re-Turns! Tax Re-Turns!" Nah, that would take some sort of self-awareness.

Gleem McShineys November 1, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Mitt just standing there with his toxic smirk on, while all his supporters shout USA USA at a banner is his version of calling in a drone strike.

Nostrildamus November 1, 2012 at 5:27 pm
mavenmaven November 1, 2012 at 5:31 pm

That look on Mitt's face, just before the clip ends, is "I can't believe I'm saying this b.s. and that they are buying it".

Also: What, walk my fat ass places? Are you fucking shitting me??

ttommyunger November 1, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Mittens is such an unlikable dick and shitty campaigner that they will have to steal this election to win. Trouble is, if they do, there will be a general uproar for a Month or two, then everyone will turn back to the toob and their Cheetos.

DickWharfinger November 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm

This gerbil snuffer reminds me of Peter Sellar's smirking Merkin Muffley, the POTUS in Dr. Strangelove.

chascates November 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

You say "Allahu Akbar", I say "U-S-A"!

Has the exact same effect.

Gleem McShineys November 1, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Now I get it. When they say things like "the jury is still out on Anthropomorphic Global Warming," scientists say "Yes, it is happening" and then these guys counter with "U-S-A! U-S-A!" which, sure, is kind of non-responsive, but still.

FeloniousMonk November 1, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Editrix, you just hurt my eyes open. I usually skip the videos of Romney rallies, but decided to watch this one and found that what I thought was humorous exaggeration is STRAIGHT BLOODY DESCRIPTION. And everyone here is so blasé: "oh, it's just the wingnuts chanting again". I'm obviously too naive for Wonkette. I think I'll go and shoot myself now. (Not with votes. Good Scotch.)

malsperanza November 1, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Damn, I don't think I've ever seen the USAUSAUSA chant used as a curse before. Thank god those people are nowhere near my hometown of NYC right now–they'd be beating us with clubs, us and our mayor and our governor. Please, folks, don't tell them where the East Coast is: there aren't enough National Guards in the nation to keep us safe.

I wonder if Romney ever has a moment, while he's standing there with that rictus frozen on his face, when he thinks, "Christ almighty, these assholes who are voting for me are a dangerous, stupid mob."

Nah.

lulzmonger November 1, 2012 at 11:25 pm

That mindless chanting thing … I wonder who ELSE was big on that?

Problem is, outside the bubble of Willard's McNuremburg Rallies, a LOT of just-plain-folks are starting to wake up & smell the shit hitting the fan.

There may well be more Big Boss storms where Sandy came from – & I suspect Sandy isn't as bad as they'll get, either … in which case no amount of sunspot/volcano/solar flare horseshit is going to keep the Unreality Circus rolling. I think Mother Nature's just getting warmed up, as it were – & we're not going to be partying (or howling three-letter slogans) much once She hits Her stride.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 1, 2012 at 11:28 pm

I like to imagine a crowd of GOPtards, standing on the boardwalk at Atlantic City, chanting "USA! USA!" as the tidal surge arrives. Just as an experiment, to see who wins.

Negropolis November 1, 2012 at 11:30 pm

I was saying Boo urns.

Guess what know-nothings. When you hit Mother Nature she usually hits back, and the bitch plays for keeps. Got it? Want to keep joking about it?

OUR HOUSE!!

Me, too. I literally cried with Tammy Baldwin at state convention last year… and Herb Kohl told me he loved me, but he's getting up there so may have been confused about who he was speaking to but HE SAID HE LOVED ME!!

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us…"

I, too, remain convinced he'll be in jail but not soon enough.

Not soon enough…
